Updating your details with SARS can save you a lot of trouble, and will it make it possible for SARS to reach you when there is an issue with your tax. When the South African Revenue Service has your latest details they can immediately alert you when there is a problem.

We can mistakenly believe that if our details are not updated with SARS they won’t know where to find us. But nothing can be further from the truth. When SARS thinks that you owe them money they will come and collect if you don’t respond to their messages. SARS also doesn’t know if they have the correct or incorrect details, and if you don’t respond they will assume that you are ignoring their communication.
SARS could be sending the warnings to the wrong number and email address because you never updated your details. You could be in trouble with the revenue services and be blissfully unaware of it, all because you couldn’t be reached on the numbers that you have provided a long time ago.
